Meadowbrook Middle School is an ordinary school with ordinary students – queen bees, jocks, nerds, brains, all the usual suspects. With nine exceptions. These students look like the others, but each of them has a special supernatural attribute that marks them out. You could call it a skill, a talent or a disadvantage, but each of these students is unique – they’re gifted.

When her alcoholic mother has to go into hospital, a stranger turns up who says he’s her long-lost dad, and promises her a better future. While Jenna is happy to discover what it’s like to have a proper parent, the gifted class have their concerns, but will Jenna listen?
